Industrial Strength #2 was released in October of 1990 on cassette. This was my second release, issued about two weeks after "Industrial Strength #1", http://www.archive.org/details/IndustrialStrength1 At that time I had planned to issue my cassette's under the title "Industrial Strength #x" and just increment the number. I changed my mind about that some time in 1991. This Archive.Org posting includes the bonus track "Mutant Intervention" which is not on either the cassette or CD versions. A scan of the original cassette j-card artwork is included below. All tracks recorded to my trusty four track Vesta-Fire MR-10B cassette deck unless noted.
Click on SEE ALL FILES in the bottom, right section for the CD and/or cassette artwork, also for the zip files I created from the original wav files. This includes flac.zip, mp3.zip, ogg.zip and wav.zip. The encoding for these files was set as high as possible the file type (except for the .wav file type).
Individual track notes: 1) "Asilomar", completed in April of 1989. This is an attempt to express the mood of a day spent at Asilomar Beach, Monterey Peninsula, California. 2) "Sly Dr Fermento's Holiday", sound-on-sound, completed in December of 1988. The title sounded fun at the time, no special importance. 3) "Anger In My Cries", completed in October of 1989. Here I revisit the theme of anger with the politics of this world. 4) "Sunlight In My Sighs", completed in December of 1989. The inner peace, the sunlight in my sighs. 5) "Now One I Stand Euphoric", completed in July of 1989. Made entirely using the Noise Generator's of my ARP 2600 and ARP Odyssey as the sources. The title gives it away: N O I S E. 6) "The Rosewith Inn", completed in December of 1989. Enjoying a peaceful stay at the rose within. 7) "Mutant Intervention", this is a bonus track not on the cassette or CD release. completed in June of 1991. This track was done after I released this album, however, it's done in the same style with the same equipment and I am trying to add unreleased material to my atchive.org postings if it's appropriate.
